Why is it great?
Aiming for blemish-free supple skin? We have a 2-in-1 product, which does just that. CLEAN & CLEAR® Dual Action Moisturiser:
- Its oil-free formula moisturises your skin to leave it feeling soft
- Its anti-blemish ingredients help fight spots and blemishes
Plus it’s fragrance free, and gentle enough even for sensitive skin.
I picked this up recently at one of the local cooperatives in Kuwait for KD 1/750 and I actually really like it. As a moisturizer, it’s very light-weight which is perfect for my needs. However, if you’re looking for a little more hydration, look elsewhere. Personally, I find heavier moisturizers uncomfortable because they make me feel like my face is sweating, especially the ones that just sit there on the skin without absorbing into it. I also dislike that I can’t apply makeup right away (because it will go on all patchy) or even just get into bed to sleep (because it will leave some sort of residue on my pillows) so I’m forced to wait for the heavier moisturizers to absorb into my skin. This doesn’t do that. It absorbs quickly and easily into the skin and because it’s oil-free it doesn’t look or feel greasy. As a matter of fact, it has a slight cooling effect. Not tingly, not minty, just very slightly cooling which I find feels pleasant. It also makes my skin soft(er).
As a blemish treatment, it’s been treating me pretty well so far. In the interest of full disclosure, I’ve got pretty good skin, generally. I’m not sure if it’s due to good genes, good luck, or my spartan skincare regimen during those formidable teenage years but my skin rarely misbehaves. However, I will get the occasional breakout as a precursor to shark week a.k.a. visit from my monthly friend and every now and again I’ll get the odd blemish here and there when I’m testing out a new skincare product. I’m not sure how well this will perform on people with extremely problematic skin but since using this stuff my skin hasn’t broken out yet so this seems to be working for me so far (which is why I still haven’t gotten a chance to use my recently hauled Clean & Clear Acne Medication). Worthy of note, this product does contain Salicylic Acid which has an anti-inflammatory effect on pimples. However, this does not have that weird chemical-y scent to it. They claim that it’s fragrance-free but my nose detects a lovely cream scent (which I enjoy) that dissipates shortly after application.
I like the packaging too because the packaging matches my favorite makeup remover which also happens to be the Best Makeup Remover Ever. In fact, that makeup remover performed so well that it inspired me to branch out and try out other products by the same brand which is why I purchased this moisturizer. Another reason I purchased this is I’d like to be more diligent when it comes to moisturizing. Finding a good moisturizer will hopefully help in that department and I can honestly say that not only is this Dual Action Moisturizer by Clean & Clear pretty good but it’s also actually perfect (for me) because it’s so lightweight. I can apply this before my makeup and not worry about looking like a grease-ball and I can also apply this before bedtime without worrying about getting any residue on my pillows because this moisturizer absorbs quickly and easily into my skin. The dry-down period literally takes seconds. Another reason why I really like this product is besides moisturizing my skin and making it feel soft(er), it’s also been keeping those pesky spots and blemishes at bay, literally keeping my skin clean and clear. Who doesn’t love a product that does the work of two products at once? I don’t know about you but I find that highly efficient which is why I’m sticking with this Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer for as long as possible.
I can’t predict how it will work on extremely dry or extremely oily or extremely problematic skin because my skin type is a combination of dry skin and an oily t-zone area and only breaks out occasionally but I do recommend you try this Dual Action Moisturizer regardless because even though it contains Salicylic Acid, as opposed to more powerful on-the-spot treatments that literally dry the surrounding area of skin as well as the pimple/spot/blemish itself this moisturizer is actually quite gentle on the skin as it’s formulated for people with sensitive skin. Again, this is a light-weight moisturizer so if you’re looking for a little extra hydration in your moisturizer, then this product is not for you but personally I really like it so if your skin type is somewhat similar to mine, I totally recommend you give this moisturizer a try.
